The northern part of the Treviso province, so peculiar in the small and differing communities that populate it, and yet tied together by a thread of typical and traditional products that make it so unlikely homogeneous. The “Strada del Prosecco”, the Prosecco road, runs through the area of Conegliano, Vittorio Veneto, and Valdobbiadene. The area, that owes its fame to this excellent wine, recently has become part of the Unesco World Heritage site.
The art, the history, and culture of this territory make it of particular interest from a touristic point of view, mainly thanks to its strategic position between Venice and the Dolomites.
The city is an amalgamation of two former comuni, Cèneda and Serravalle, which were joined into one municipality in 1866 and named Vittorio after the King of Italy, Vittorio Emanuele II. The battle fought nearby in November 1918 became generally known as the Battle of Vittorio Veneto, and the city's name was officially changed to Vittorio Veneto in July 1923.In Serravalle you can find the Castle of Serravalle or Castrum, liked to the ancient history of the town of Serravalle. Today the medieval castle and borough are incorporated into the municipality of Vittorio Veneto.
Conegliano is noted for its wine, chiefly the dry white Prosecco (made from the glera grape) which comes in three varieties: tranquillo (still), frizzante (slightly sparkling) and spumante (sparkling). It is also home to Italy's oldest and most prestigious wine school called Scuola Enologica. It is also home to the Istituto Sperimentale per la Viticoltura where several Italian grape varieties have been bred. The hills around Conegliano are home to the Denominazione di origine controllata e garantita (DOCG) zone of Colli di Conegliano.
